I am Derek Oxley an avid runner and running shoe aficionado, which ultimately means I am a Sneakerholic.  Curious by nature and a desire to stay on the forefront of running shoe technology, form and BIOMECHANICS. 

I started researching running shoes 5 years ago by watching videos, reading blogs, magazines and anything else I could get my hands on.  

Armed with this information I justified my purchases and continued to feed my addiction.  

With no hope for a cure insight, I decided to start writing a blog as a way to chronicle my quest to BQ and share sneaker reviews with those in the market for their 1st pair or 91st pair of running shoes.
